Jill’s the most popular baker since Betty Crocker but running a bakery is not easy. Check out Gamezebo’s Tips & Tricks for Cake Mania.
Know your Customer
Each customer has a different temperament and should be treated accordingly:
Kid: Very impatient and will calm down when given cupcakes. Keep an eye on him as he will storm out of the shop if ignored.
Businessman: There are two types of businessmen, one regular and one on vacation. The regular businessman is somewhat patient and will wait a little longer for his order. The businessman on vacation is very impatient and will need lots of attention.
Granny: She may look sweet and kind, but this granny can be a real handful. She also appears in two different outfits, as a regular granny and as a granny on vacation. The vacation granny is much more impatient than the regular one.
College coed: This is the girl who shows up in the shop wearing the green skirt and purple top. She is an average customer who just needs her cake made in a timely manner.
Bride: This customer must be late for her wedding as she is one of the most demanding customers in the game. Make sure to give her free samples and tune the TV to her favorite channel or she will run out the door.
Delivery man: The delivery man is the first customer you will see in your shop. He is not demanding as long as he gets his order.
Food critic: All food critics look for the best possible service. Make sure not to ignore her or you will get bad reviews.
Easter bunny: An odd looking man in a bunny suit. He can become ornery if ignored for too long. Make sure you take care of him before he hops away.
Santa Claus: If Santa’s here, it must be December. He is a busy man, with many people to see. Make sure he isn’t kept waiting.
Dracula: Halloween comes once a year, like our friend Dracula. He can become impatient and steal hearts from other players, making them even more impatient.
Cupid: He may be a symbol of love, but this little guy is pretty impatient. It is best to put on cartoons, give him a cupcake and get his order done quickly. The good thing about Cupid is that he orders one layer cakes, making it a bit easier to serve him.
Favorite TV Channel
Cake Mania is not just about baking cakes, it’s also about buying cool stuff.
TV: A television keeps customers happily distracted, buying Jill more time to cook. There are three channels to choose from: Cartoons, News, and Food network.
Make sure you know what character likes which channel as it is helpful with the more impatient customers (See chart above).
The display case is not as necessary as some of the other items available for purchase. If you don’t plan on making mistakes, your money is much better spent elsewhere. If you would like to display a cake, or have a backup, this could be a good purchase.
Make sure you upgrade Jill’s shoes when you reach the beach. It will help you move faster to get orders out to your customers.
When upgrading equipment, make sure to spread your money out. It is much better to slowly build two topping stations than one station quickly.
Leave money on the counter rather than collecting it quickly. This allows you to focus on fewer customers at once, making it less likely to make mistakes in the later levels.
